    Representative Matters

    1. Represented a commercial property owner in multi-party litigation in the Superior Court of New Jersey challenging the municipal redevelopment plan of a New Jersey municipality. The municipality's redevelopment plan had designated the area surrounding the client's business as an area in need of redevelopment, leaving it subject to potential eminent domain proceedings. Mr. Schultz worked to obtain a settlement which involved the redrafting of the redevelopment plan to exclude the client's property from the redevelopment area and potential eminent domain proceedings.
    2. Represented a non-profit corporation before a municipal joint land use board. The client sought approval of a conditional use variance for use of its property as a social and cultural organization, subdivision of the 11+ acre property into two lots, approval of a minor Site Plan with regard to parking and other improvements, as well as various other submission and design waivers and bulk variances. Mr. Schultz obtained the Board's unanimous approval of all relief sought by the client in one hearing before the Board.
    3. Represented a residential property owner as an objector to a use variance application for the construction of a duplex to be used for affordable and low income housing in a single family residential neighborhood. In a hearing before a South Jersey municipal zoning board, Mr. Schultz was able to convince the board to vote unanimously to deny the requested use variance.
    4. Represented a regional distributor of motor fuels before a local joint land use board in connection with an application for variances in connection with the installation of signs and the rebranding of a service station. The application also included variances and waivers related to the bulk requirements for lot size and setback requirements. Mr. Schultz obtained the Board's unanimous approval of the relief sought by the client.
    5. Represented a real estate management company before a South Jersey zoning board in connection with a major site plan application for the conversion of an existing single tenant building into several flex units, consisting of both office and warehouse space. The client further sought variances and waivers related to the bulk requirements for lot area, lot width, lot coverage, lot improvement, front yard setback and side yard setback, parking space dimensions, number of parking spaces, signage, and stormwater management controls. Mr. Schultz obtained the Board's unanimous approval of all relief sought by the client in one hearing before the Board. Mr. Schultz also represented the client before the County Planning Board, obtaining that agency's unanimous approval as well.
    6. Represented a pet boarding, grooming and supply store seeking an interpretation and/or use variance to permit the overnight boarding of animals at the store site. The client further sought waivers of the requirements to provide a property survey and a minor site plan in connection with certain renovations to the interior of the building. Mr. Schultz obtained the Board's unanimous approval of the use variance, as well as all waivers sought by the client.
